IBM Thinkpad 365 ED sound problem

I recently upgraded the hard drive of an IBM Thinkpad.  Everything is finally back in order except the sound that you set windows to play.  (i.e. when it boot up, close a program etc.)  This sound has a lot of static as is barely recognizable.  The CD ROM plays the sound just fine.

Can anyone help?
Thanks,
Nancy

Maybe you have a loose cd connector. Try to reseat / clean all connectors which may have been disturbed.

since you upgraded your hard drive, it means you ( or at the shop ) opened the machin.
What you described seems like the wires connecting the speaker got loos, and then disconnected totaly...
Open up your machin, ( by pulling both of the "mouse keys " and then both of the buttons that you use to open the screen ) and verry carffuly, check for loos wires leading to the speaker.
If you never opend the machin befor and do not know the interior of the machin, I would strongly recomend you take it to an expert, or better yet to the shop that upgraded the HD for you, in that case demand for a toll free service becous most likely they did the damidge ( discconecting the wires )

It was a conflict in the settings.  I fixed it and it works fine.
Thanks,
